When to Visit an Urgent Care Clinic

Immediate Care for Illness or Injury that Is Not Life-Threatening
Urgent care is not a replacement for emergency care, which is what you need if you have a life-threatening illness or injury. Urgent care is appropriate when you experience an illness or injury that requires care within 24 hours. We routinely treat children and adults for accidents or falls; sprains, strains, and broken bones; cuts that require stitches; fever, flu, vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea; and skin rashes and infections.

Wondering If You Need Emergency Care?
If you’re not sure whether your situation is an emergency, contact your primary care doctor first. They can recommend whether you should go to the emergency department, an urgent care center, or your doctor’s office. If your health plan has a 24-hour nurse line, that’s another option for getting advice on whether you need emergency care. Read our 9 Facts about Emergency Care.
